Yankees catcher Chris Iannetta was designated for assignment by the team on Saturday in order to activate pitcher Masahiro Tanaka.
Iannetta was the team's third catcher and did not make an appearance in 2020. He isn't relevant in even the deepest fantasy formats unless he lands with a team that plans to give him regular playing time.
Chris Iannetta signed a major-league deal with the Yankees on Tuesday according to the team's website.
Iannetta will be on the 30-man roster as the third catcher behind Gary Sanchez and Kyle HIgashioka to open the delayed 2020 season. The veteran catcher will unlikely see enough playing time to be fantasy relevant.
Chris Iannetta went 2-for-3 with a homer, a double, a walk, and two RBI as the Rockies beat the Marlins 5-1 on Sunday.
Iannetta still has some pop in his bat and is worth streaming in deeper leagues whenever the Rockies play at home. He's batting .261 with a .926 OPS in limited action this year.
Chris Iannetta went 2-for-3 with a homer and two RBI as the Rockies beat the D'Backs on Tuesday.
Iannetta is batting .267 with a .920 OPS in 20 games this season. The homer was his fourth of the season. There would be more fantasy appeal here in deeper leagues if he got more playing time.
Chris Iannetta went 1-for-4 with a double and a run scored in the Rockies' 5-4 win over the Red Sox on Tuesday.
Iannetta struck out in his other three at bats as most of the Rockies lineup had trouble with Chris Sale tonight. The 36-year-old is now riding a modest five-game hitting streak.
